I want to apologize for my followers for neglecting my blog for sooooo long. It been almost two years since I have update any pics. I know many people who are considering sister locks really rely upon what ones locks evolve into over time and I think one of the best things that we can do as veteran lock wearers with a blog can be to update our blogs with pics. One of my challenges have been a crashed computer that I have yet to be able to replace, the other is the difficulty with mobile blogging, and then the laziness comes in at a close third. MUCH has been happening since I last blogged, namely the fact that I am now a Sisterlock Trainee!! I completed the course October 2011. I haven't done an install yet but I am hopeful that the perfect client will come along and want me to install their locks. I do have a blog for my journey as a trainee and it is and I have a Facebook fan page called please support my business by liking my fan page....
My locks are now 5 years and 3 months and going very strong!!! Time has flown by very fast cause I never imagined my hair would have gotten to this point and I can't wait to see what it does in the next 5 years!!

Recent pictures are a coming

I haven't blogged about my locks in a while and miss it immensely. The locks are still my dearly beloved but for me the blogging was so much more exciting when the locks were new. Since the novelty has worn off and they have matured, at this stage, all I can showcase is the new length. I am primarily a freestyle wearer because to do anything else with the locks by way of styling is such a huge chore. I am so cheap too that I din't want to pay anyone to style my hair either. Even washing it is a big chore. All I can say is that the hair is just a growing and a growing. At this stage, the changes are really just length, length......and believe it or not, more length. It is a blessing and a curse too! I love long hair, but I am finding it to be a bit of a pain at times too. I recently purchased a new camera and have some pics in there of my hair these days which I will post soon, perhaps will show some comparison shots from years 1, 2, and three. I can't believe that 4 years is almost here since my locks were installed! stay tuned......

It Grew Like Wildfire!

The night before I was retightened. I am 3 now, this is after a fresh wash! I really have hair past my shoulders don't I? In another year...I am going to be in this length it is still quite manageable but I am beginning to understand how much work longer hair is...For instance, air drying takes a whole day, well in NE weather..summer time is different. it takes me an hour (if I am lucky) to roll my hair. I have a hard time gathering it all in a neat ponytail because my hands are small, I always have to remove it from under my coat. If someone is sleeping with me, they tend to lay on it...including my cat! (No cat hairs either) This was pre highlight. I feel like the highlights gave it added dimension too. Now y hair is officially 4 colors...but I like it. My color doesn't have to be perfect...each lock isn't perfect either. It is definitely unique though.

Happy Late 3rd Lockversary

I got highlights and I love it!!My hair is set with small lock loops! day 1 set, I used motions extra firm hair mousse and voila!!! I am 3 now, very mature and just growing....oh yeah, and VERY HAPPY!!

Jada's Braidlocks are 26 Months old!

jada freshly retightened! She wouldn't let me touch her hair! She actually told me.....I WOULD MESS IT UP! Thats when you know SL's build self esteem and brings out the best of us! Big and little sisters alike

Sisterlock/Natural Hair Gathering

Ok..I am going to apologize immensely for the very long post and sorry for the dupliactes, I could not remove them once they were uploaded, I barely have time to post pics let alone figure out how to make slide shows and collages and all of that Jazz...since I've turned 3 on 1/17/10 and got a fierce new highlighting job, I wanted to make sure I posted pics becausewho knows when I will post again...So we have a semi-annual Natural hair gathering here in Beantown. It was so much fun! We this time we had raffle drawings for free and even watched Good Hair... so enjoy these pics The first pic from L->is consultant Jacqueline Ashby, her client (I believe) Sharon, and Muah.. we all had out hair set with soft spikes..well I have loc loops but the concept is exactly the same. The 2nd and 3rd pic is my home girl Bern and I, she is getting her install on dones at the end of March by my new consultant Sheryl. She won a giveaway and got $100 off services by Jackie will bless her babies at her 3rd retightening. Once Bern gets her install she will be the 6th person I converted in 3 years! Not a bad track record since it is all passive conversion...just leading by example! 4th pic is Martine and Bern..she is still my consultant and Boston area SL icon, she installed me and will retighten me when Sheryl relocates at the end of the year. Look at my archive and see Martines 1st set of locks..they were 6 in those pics. Last year, Martine had to cut her hair from damage from dye and tension thinned the front of her locks.. Her current set are 3 months old. The 5th pic is of 3 SL sisters...Yvonne, Sheka, and sheryl, my current consultant. Now look at sheryl's babies back in August, and look at them now. they are growing like wild flowers! 6th pic is angela and I. I met her in BJ's when my locks were 4-5 months old! She is lovely. Both of our hair grew like crazy since and I discovered I went to high school with her daughter. Pics 7-9 is my new hair piece. There was a vendor there who sold leather hair accessories. I wish I had more money with me. I was able to get myself 1 and my daughter Jada 1 but I have her number and will be her new #1 customer. The quality of her work and craftswomanship is on point....don't you agree. as you can see, I dye my hair about once per year. Constant dying ruins the integrity of your locks. I could care less about black roots as you can clearly see.

Showcasing another hair piece.

Showcasing Yvonnes hairstyle by Sheryl with a hair piece. I was trying to get Yvonne to buy it but I am not sure she was feeling it...I was though.

Mohawk done by Sheryl. This sister's SL's are babies..a few months old. Isnt she cute though?

This is the back of Angela's hair with a hair piece. Gorgeous huh? I think Angela mght be 5 years old now.

This is the creator of the hair pieces...we were watching Good Hair. It was excellent even though alot of SL wearers were disappointed that it left us Nappy and Proud women out of the loop...Imagine if they would have had a bunch of FINE SL women in that film...WE WOULD HAVE CHANGED THE FACE OF THAT MOVIE!!!

Sheryl when she was doing Yvonne's hair! Little Amari waiting to get her hair done. she is Jackie's daughter, she's 8 and have been SL'd for about 2 years!

Ms. Amari after Sheryl worked her magic!
